In Case You Missed It…..

Report

Hi Everyone,

The concert last night in Concord seems to have been a rousing success. Lots of noise, lots of applause and wonderful singing from Il Volo. We are waiting for Elaine who happily attended, to give us the highlights.

1) Twitter, Tweets and Keeks from last night after the concert:

PIERO tweets, “Loved the audience in Concord and now on the road, next concert tomorrow in LA at Gibson Amphitheatre”
GIANLUCA tweets, “On the road with the new Il Volo tour bus.”I’m in my little bed and ready to go to sleep, it was a long and beautiful day, Los Angeles is waiting for us”
IGNAZIO tweets ” While i’m singing they take pictures from my phone” along with a picture of Piero and Gianluca taking a selfie with his phone!

2) Please see below a response from The Vancouver Sun to a complaint about the review of Il Volo’s concert in Vancouver.

Hello,  Thanks for your email on Erika’s review of the Il Volo Concert. You might guess that you are not the only fan who has taken us to task for this review. While I personally would not have chosen to start this particular piece … “Opera is in trouble” I must tell you that I stand by our reviewer’s right, first, to express personal disappointment over what she heard, and secondly, to write about it.

Reviewers always seem to be pleasing some and angering others … She should have referred to their music as operatic pop, you are right. But, that said, I assume that your anger stems primarily from the fact that the reviewer did not enjoy the night as much as you yourself did.

She did, however, give credit where it was due and recognized, for example, the fact that some established entertainers hold Il Volo in high regard and the fact that Boschetto sang a “soaring rendition” of Streisand’s Memory.  We welcome our readers’ feedback and I thank you for taking the time to consider our content and call us up on it.

Best regards,
Managing Editor
The Vancouver Sun

Although the Sun did respond regarding some issues, not all were addressed. We will keep you updated if there is any further response.

We wish Il Volo Love and Luck for tonight’s concert in LA.

Hi Everyone,

It’s one day past the first concert of 2013. We have been seeing glowing comments from those who attended. They applauded the song choices, the wonderful voices of “Our Boys” and the general atmosphere of music and fun. “Night and Day” is a new song added to their great repetoire. They sang for 2 hours with many standing ovations.

Tweets:
Gianluca tweeted “concert fantastic” thanks Vancouver”!
Piero tweeted “Buonamotte Mondo” #great concert #beautiful concert.
Ignazio said “Tonight was amazing!! thanks everyone, couldn’t be more happy”

Check Mundial for some good concert photos.
Check Team Il Volo for a great review of the concert.

We too are very disappointed with the review by a reporter from ” The Vancouver Sun” It didn’t seem she was well versed on Il Volo and their history to give a fair review.
We on the Board will address this as a group as we settle down a bit, so it is not written in any manner that would embarrass “The Boys”.

I would like to wish MARY a happy birthday today. She’s a lovely lady that writes such sweet comments about Il Volo. She is also the “lucky” lady who is meeting Loretta and Marie in Detroit. Have fun ladies!

Hi Everyone,

Well here we are, the day before the first concert!! We are all so excited to hear the comments from those lucky enough to attend the Vancouver concert. Let us know as soon as you can about all the exciting things that went on!!!

1) Twitters, Tweets and Keeks

Ignazio tweeted last night “Almost ready!!” He also tweeted a picture of himself at the gym. He tweeted late last night, “Just finished rehearsing”
Gianluca tweeted that he was going to the gym. Seems as though, even on tour they’re keeping up with their workouts. Workouts are important to help keep them in shape for a whirlwind tour.
Gianluca tweeted also “Dreams come true if we only wish hard enough, you can have everything in life if you sacrifice” He, Ignazio and Piero feel very strongly about their careers!

2) Check out Team Il volo for a very nice article on Piero. They did Gianluca yesterday, prehaps they will feature Ignazio tomorrow?

We hope everyone going to the concert tomorrow night has a fabulous time. Say hello to “The Boys” for us.

Hi Everyone,

It seems Piero, Ignazio, and Gianluca are settled in Vancouver to rehearse for the concert and get familiar with The Orpheum Theatre.
From the pictures they have tweeted, Vancouver looks like a beautiful city, especially when it’s all lit up at night.

1) On Team Il Volo Blogspot check out the interview Ignazio and Gianluca gave to TG2 at the airport in Italy prior to their flight. It’s in Italian and even if you don’t speak Italian it’s worth watching for the quick look at their career going back about 3-4 years. It really shows how much they’ve matured over the past few years.

2) There are some nice photos of “The Boys” on Mundial taken after their arrival. Could it be that Gianluca has gone back to his curly hair? What do you think? THere is also a video from CTV of an interview the boys did this morning , watch it,you’ll enjoy!!!

3) Twitter, Tweets and Keeks:
Check out Gianluca’s tweet “going to gym” and a tweet to his fans “You are a song written by the hand of God” He is so sweet to his fans!
See the Keek from Piero “Doing what we love to do” It’s Piero playing the piano and Ignazio singing “Unchained Melody” Prehaps a preview from the concert?

If you’ll notice the picture of the lady reporter at the top of this page is blushing. I’ve been telling you all week about “The Boys” being on Hallmark today and they didn’t air it! My apologies for any inconvenience it may have caused.

Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca we wish you success and fun on the concert tour.
